More from the November 2011 California Bar Journal:
[An attorney] was disbarred July 6, 2011, and was ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court.
[The attorney] pleaded guilty in 2009 to knowing possession of child pornography, a felony. A second count was dismissed as part of a plea bargain. He was placed on interim suspension that year and submitted his resignation to the State Bar. The Supreme Court rejected the resignation.
[He] admitted he downloaded numerous images of children under 18 engaged in sexual activity. He regularly appeared in Lake County Superior Court on juvenile dependency matters. A bailiff found a thumb drive [the attorney] had left in court and discovered child pornography had been downloaded on the drive.
